Andrew C. Tsunis, a Broker Associate with Barkett Realty, assisted his buyer in purchasing an incredibly unique home in Indian Shores, FL. Not only was the home the largest estate sale to occur in Indian Shores within the last decade, closing at $6.9 million, but it was a rare combination of both beachside and dockside—less than one percent of properties in Pinellas County contain both of these unique characteristics.

In addition to having toes in the sand and an on-property deep water-dock, the buyer also sought newer construction with super high-end finishes and a relatively quick turnaround time. Tsunis and the Barkett Realty team helped the buyer move from contract to closing in less than a week, including negotiating the dock lease. The property boasts three levels of waterfront views—from Gulf to Intercoastal—and includes four bedrooms, seven bathrooms, a six-car garage, private elevator, pool and generator.

Tsunis recently joined the Barkett Realty team as the brokerage is expanding their team and their offices with the recent addition of a Beachside office located at 6930 Gulf Boulevard in St. Pete Beach. The Barkett Realty Beachside office is an oasis for sellers and buyers being surrounded by the sumptuous wine and charcuterie lounge, Sea Grapes.

“In the competitive sellers’ market that we are experiencing right now, our clients need our smart, innovative and savvy agents to assist them in finding the perfect home,” said John Barkett, Broker/Owner of Barkett Realty. “Andrew epitomizes our team and our values in terms of his depth of knowledge and ability to deliver results for our clients.”

Client Testimonial

Andrew C. Tsunis was extremely helpful and very professional in helping me find the correct home. We were able to close within 5 business days. There was a water lease with the state that Andrew was able to get assigned and approved through the state of Florida before closing. I don’t believe there is another agent that could have accomplished this in the short time frame. I would highly recommend Andrew and his firm in the future. Actually Andrew is currently assisting my Daughter and Son in law with their Florida condo selection and purchase. Thanks to Andrew I am looking forward to many enjoyable years on the Gulf beach front and excited to get the boat purchased.
